You Rock

The product category in the August Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com is to use a recycled item. Well, Karen totally inspired this card because she used a mail flyer on her card. I never thought to look at my mail for scrapbook inspiration so I headed out to my “in box” for mail. And to my surprise was a coupon flyer from Office Depot and it had this printed on one side. It was scratched up in a spot from being mailed so I took my sand paper to it to make it look like it was suppose to be distressed! I cut it out and pop dotted it onto the card. The design of the card was inspired by Sweet Sunday Sketch #231…I just left the circle off.

SUPPLIES:
Saying was cut out of an Office Depot mail flyer
Cardstock: Bazzill ( Sunshine, Intense Kiwi), Hobby Lobby (turquoise), orangish color – unknown
Accent/Tools: black pen, pop dots, cutter bee scissors

School Girl

I wanted to make a card for my niece to wish her well in school this year. I thought this image by Diane’s Daydream Design would be perfect for a 7th grader.

The background needed something but I didn’t have an embossing template that I liked for this. So I got out my scor-pal and made my own design based on the plaid in the skirt. I think it turned out pretty good!

CHALLENGES:
1) August Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Technique – Stitching
2) Sketch-N-Scrap Card Sketch #31 – use the sketch provided as inspiration
3) Creative Card Crew Challenge #68 – embossing
4) Catch the Bug Challenge – August Bingo Challenge – Bold colors, embossing, school (I think those are bold colors!)
5) A Gem of a Challenge #126 – Stitching

SUPPLIES:
Image: School Days KD Kit @ Diane’s Daydream Designs
Cardstock: Bazzill (Candy Apple, Classic Yellowgreen, white)
Inks: pre-colored digital stamp printed on canon inkjet printer
Accents/Tools: Scor-pal, white floss, Lasting Impressions stitching template

All you need is love….

and a few Doodle Pantry stamps then you will be ready for Valentine’s Day!! Which is not far away since it is January 1, 2014!!! Happy New Year!!

Today is first Doodle Pantry release of 2014!! I got to work with 2 digital image sets this month.

First up is Kissy Lips. I made two cards that are similar because I couldn’t decide what I liked better!

Kissy LipsPucker Up

I used MOJO Monday 325 sketch for my inspiration. I also decided to to make them shiny by putting Glossy Accents on them. They went from dull to shiny just like real lips when you add gloss or lipstick to them!

The second card I made used an SVG file – Hearts Galore and a re-release of Loving Critters Digital Image (use to be a Clearly Digi Stamp). The cool thing about the Heart Galore SVG file is that it also come with JPEG and PNG images too. And to make it even sweeter Laurie is offering Free with purchase between Jan 1-9th.

Just For Ewe

Inside: Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is the second card I made using the sketch below. This time I stayed pretty true to the sketch.

I am really happy with this card!! I finally made a CAS card that I like! I don’t do CAS and it is usually hard for me but this one came together pretty easily. I also love that it was inspired by Sketch #4 at the September Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. Instead of 5 small hexagons I made one big one. I wanted to do this sketch but it had me stumped for a bit….but not any longer! I was also inspired by Ceal’s card @ Simply Beautiful Blog and took the sentiment from it.  I also went with the simple scheme to follow challenge #208 at ColourQ Blog – black, white and a splash of one color.

But most importantly I made this card for my niece to encourage her to read books. She is struggling in reading so I plan on sending this to her to help her along.

Challenges:

1) Catch the Bug Challenge – September photo challenge – school theme

2) A Gem of a Challenge #99 – use black on your card

3) Day 270 @ 365 Cards – Keep it Simple. Use only 3 items on your card – any three items, not including the sentiment.

4) Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge – Anything Goes (as long as it is for a kid)

5) September Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Photo inspiration category

Supplies:

Digital Image: Bookworms Digital Image (last day to get it at Clearly Digi Stamps)

Accents/Tools: Spellbinders Hexagon Dies, pop dots, Zig black pen, computer

Original Sketch: CAS(e) this Sketch #37

Time for school!!

I’m on vacation but have been non stop crafting or running errands…..doing all the things that pile up while you work!! Not complaining as I have a lot of request for cards right now so I’m glad I’m on vacation and have time to make then and ENJOY the process.

Enough about that check out the JULY NEW RELEASES at Clearly Digi Stamps!! I’m only previewing two stamps that my husband designed but had several ideals pop up when I saw the other images…just ran out of time!!

The first one is from the Dino’s Digital Image at Clearly Digi Stamps:

Dinosaurs

I remembered I had this OLD Basic Grey paper that was dinosaur theme so I took it out to see if it would match. This paper was just perfect for it….but as I started working on it I felt it looked like a grown-up card not a kid card. But I went with it anyway and really like the card BUT then Lori reminds me I could of used “Older then Dirt” and made it a birthday card for an adult!! Duh…why didn’t I think of that!! I used Seize the Birthday Sketch #20 as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:

1) 613 Avenue Create Challenge #28– Birthday

2) Seize the Birthday – Anything Birthday Challenge

3) Card Makin’ Mamas Challenge #72 – Monochromatic

4) Crafty Creations Challenge #230 – Pun Fun

The second card has to do with School…I know seems to early to think about school but actually its not that far away here in the mid west. School starts around Aug 12 so I asked my husband to do a School Theme set for all those BACK TO SCHOOL projects. This is what he came up with – Time for School Digital Image

TimeForSchoolProofSheet

The other DT members made wonderful cards with the Book Worm and Boy with Backpack so I decided to use the Apple with Worm. I’m actually going to send this to my friend who is a teacher and has been having some “trying” school years lately. The school she is in is in a rough area and the stories she tells is amazing. The school is getting a new principal this year and that can make or break a school year for a teacher. She is an amazing teacher with over 25 years experience so I thought I would send her some encourage as the school year starts next month. I used the Deconstruction Sketch #107 as my inspiration for the design.
